Interesting, sadly the only thing I'd think I'd buy would be the AquaPak (I'm poor and need a new backpack). What are the planned prices for these items? Also, some real info about the larger nozzles I'd like to see, when I read "and bigger nozzles" it makes me wonder how much larger. And if it wil...

Common problem. The repair has been on SSCentral for ages, as well as a few other sites. I need to add a few more pics to the SSCentral guide and write some more, but here's a few sites: http://www.sscentral.net/tech/repairs/otvr.php http://www.geocities.com/dryhumper70/Mods.html http://www.blissto...

I've heard a lot of things about the pc ripping or somthing else happening after use. I am wondering... like the stuff about the 05 soakers, where are you hearing this stuff? Obviously not here or SSCentral. The only person I remember who said anything like that was TPM. I haven't heard any bad thi...

That idea has been thought of before. It's ok, but even at night it's not very effective. My reccomendation is to use a 6-8 inch long piece of 1/2" ID PVC as a sight if you need one. You won't need anything too expensive or fancy for a Super Soaker.

Speaking in terms of modding there is much you can do: 1) Collosus mod 2) Check Valve Freeze 3) Nozzle mods/drilling 4) Misc. Reinforcements (internals, pump rod, ect) 5) Backpack/capacity mods Most of these mods are on my site, SSCentral . The _section here has a pictoral Collosus guide (called th...

Are there any examples of when the Nerf fandom changed some of Hasbro's Nerf lineup designs? Modding is so prevalent in Nerf that many guns are designed to be hard to open or mod. Lanard buys old, generally recommended Nerf guns to base their designs off of. The boxes of Nerf guns say only use ammo...

You don't need something that powerful... or rare and costly. If you can hit it in the split second shot time, then it might be for you. But myself and others can't, and I'd rather NOT buy an over $100 CPS 2000 just for shooting cats. If you were that serious about power you'd get a homemade anyway...

That has such a short shot time it would be much less than effective. The bad thing about riot blasts and large output blasts is that if someone dodges it then you just wasted 20 or more pumps. For a current gun I'd recommend the Water Warriors Blazer or Lightning, or Pirhana. Long shot times are a...

Yeah, I do think this K-modding has gone too far. I doubt this is what XN ever intended people to use this mod for. I believe I said at SSCentral, anyone can go out, buy 400 balloons, K-mod them all onto a PC and then brag about it at the forums. Also, your APH can very easily get more powerful tha...

I don't exactly know to much about the XP 310 because I haven't use it, but what standing out to me is this "monster X/ Cps 2000 hybrid" you mentioned. This may warrant a new topic, but what is it? I would like to know, I am interested.

You also could just have taken off the nozzle selector to get a similar effect. But then again, you probably would have used the selector. In that case I would have drilled it because the nozzle would have been cleaner. If it works then I guess there's no complaints though.

First, this doesn't go in this forum at all. I would move it but I'm not a moderator. How is the trigger broken? If it is snapped, my site has a repair guide that you should find most helpful. If it's another problem please tell me. Also, I think that you could possibly make a PVC substitute for th...

Welcome to iSoaker.com Forums. That isn't a valve, rather a rubber seal. You could replace the end with a correctly sized O ring and it should seal it fine. The proble is how to do that... your best bet may be to replace the pump with an alluminum rod like in some of my homemades. Use two pieces of...
